Ways to Surf
“The best surfer out there is the one having the most fun.”
For us at Surfability UK, surfing is all about having fun. We adapt to the needs of our surfers so they can take to the waves, achieve their surfing goals and, most importantly, have fun while doing so. To achieve this, we offer surfing lessons in four different styles; single board, tandem, prone or tandem seated.
Single Board Surfing
This surfing style is for surfers who can use a board by themselves. Our team adjust and adapt the level of support given, depending on the individual needs of our surfers. This support can vary from verbally instructing independent surfers, to constant one-to-one support.
There are different ways to surf, and we encourage our surfers to surf in a way that is comfortable for them. On a single board, our surfers can surf kneeling, prone or standing.
This surfing style is for surfers who need assistance with balance, or who find following instructions difficult. Surfers receive constant one-to-one support from at least one member of our team.
Again, we encourage our surfers to surf in a way that is comfortable for them. On a tandem board, our surfers can surf sitting, kneeling or prone. We can also offer assisted standing for younger surfers.
Seated Tandem Surfing
This surfing style is for surfers who find sitting, kneeling or lying unsupported uncomfortable or difficult. Surfers are supported four-to-one, with one member of our team surfing tandem with them, whilst the other team members provide in-water support in the case of a wipeout.
This surfing style is for surfers who are unable to stand/kneel on a board, and who need extra support but would still like to surf as independently as possible. Surfers receive support from two members of our team, one pushing the surfer into waves and one “catching” the surfer in the shallows.
Our prone surfboards are specially adapted for people who need extra support to help them stay on a surfboard, with additional handles and a support for the surfer’s chest.
